Target Audience

This course has been designed for anyone looking to strengthen your skills to fund your program and understand the grant process. For this course, we focus on understanding the importance of being prepared for the grant, what grants to look for, how to prepare sections of a grant, and how they are evaluated. This includes walking all the way through the grant process and preparing a grant for you to apply for as the final product. Our instructor is here to help you throughout the course.

Course Purpose

The purpose of this course is to explore funding sources and build skills for grant writing to fund your program. It will focus in the area of Physical Education, but will walk you through the steps of grant writing as well as direct you to sites to seek various types of funding. This course aims to arm the grant seeker with skills and knowledge to provide funding for your program. Our goal is to have you prepared to overcome obstacles and apply for a grant by the end of this course.

Course Description

This course will focus on resources available for teachers to seek and successfully obtain funding for their programs. While it will focus on physical education, it can easily be adapted by others. Throughout the course, participants will put together the elements of a grant that can be submitted when the funding opportunity opens.

We will utilize video, website, power point and podcasts to assist you along the way, but the main final product will be a completed grant. The grant may not be open on the date you complete this course, but you will be prepared to apply when it reopens.

1. To identify funding sources
2. To create a personal grant folder with resources.
